SenzaGen receives order of SEK 0.6 million from new global customer

SenzaGen will assess the sensitizing hazards of chemicals for a new global customer with in-house product development. The assignment includes SenzaGen's tests to assess whether chemical substances can cause allergic reactions in skin (GARD[™]skin) or in the respiratory tract (GARD[™]air) with a value of approximately SEK 0.6 million. The tests will be carried out at SenzaGen's laboratory in Lund.

The customer has its headquarters in Europe where research and development have a central role. With the combination of GARD tests, the customer can for the first time identify substances with various allergy-causing effects during product development, which contributes to cost savings for the company and safer products to the society.

“This assignment is important for several reasons. We now begin to see the results of our sales efforts and from the new commercial organization that we started to build during the fall. The fact that the customer wants to test chemicals for both skin and respiratory allergies makes this an important reference order,” says Axel Sjöblad, CEO of SenzaGen.

SenzaGen’s test platform GARD targets companies looking to optimize their in vitro testing strategy; increasing the accuracy of their test results while avoiding animal testing. Through its precision and reliability, GARD improves the quality of customers’ decision-making and contributes to increased product safety in people’s everyday lives while reducing the number of animal experiments. SenzaGen is the only company that can offer a non-animal, so called in vitro test, for identification of chemical respiratory allergens.

About GARD™
GARD™ consists of a group of tests for analyzing chemicals’ ability to start an allergic reaction in humans. The tests are performed on human cells in test tubes (in vitro) in combination with artificial intelligence. By analyzing hundreds of markers, GARD™ generates large amounts of data and delivers results with over 90 percent accuracy. This can be compared to today’s standard method – tests on animals – which only achieves 70-75 percent accuracy. The product portfolio consists of tests for skin and respiratory allergy: GARD™skin, GARD™air, GARD™potency and GARD™skin Medical Device.
